Your probably thinking why would she use postage stamps to create art work; it would be expensive hobby to do if she did it that way, but be interesting to see what she came out with. Good idea but WRONG! Due to my expensive hobby of crafting when I have my moments however I was given an Paperchase Sketch pad for my birthday a few months ago; I thought I really want to do something really nice in there but what can I do, I know my drawings are pretty rubbish but still and that’s when I realised that I had craft stamps in a box.
The fact is that I enjoy art very much in my own time when I’m feeling like I want to do something nice for a change and keep my mind occupied for awhile. It’s one of my go to things at the moment just to take my mind of things; I thought I’ll give the craft stamps ago to create a picture using the stamps that I have, I did trial and errors to begin with which turned out alright but then I got the idea of what I was going and started to think and plan in what I want to do.
This is my first proper planned design piece that I’ve done to which I actually liked the most because I thought about it and what colours would go with it. To begin with I wasn’t too sure how it would turn out; as I was going along finishing colouring it all in, and once it had finished I looked at it. I thought this is awesome I like this very much indeed. If I did my art GCSE again and they would let us use craft stamps or something that involved them I would be so in for it. Doing lots of pictures and scenes without a problem yeah it might be called cheating but arts and crafts is still art at the end of the day it’s still your own piece of work at the end of the day.
I’m currently in the midst of doing this one at the moment and I’m enjoying every moment of it because I picked out what I wanted then placed them where I wanted them. Making the castle as a centre
piece of the picture like it’s in the woods. I will share with you what it would be like after it’s completed.
